Built in 1903, this Beaux Arts style state house was designed by architect Theodore Link, and boasts an array of scagliola and marble from around the world. Stained glass and allegorical figures enhance this Mississippi Landmark, a site on the National Register of Historic Places.
The rotunda of the Mississippi State Capitol Building is another haunt of a young Eudora who used to use it as a short cut and glided through on her roller skates. Visitors can explore the beautiful building with its dome interior containing 750 lights which illuminate the blind-folded lady representing "Blind Justice" and four scenes: two Indians, a Spanish explorer and a Confederate general. The first floor, the Hall of Governors displays portraits of Mississippi's governors since the creation of the Mississippi Territory in 1798. Among the trees on the grounds is the state tree – the Magnolia – along with two Japanese magnolias.
